, about 50 pages. i read them, and at the time at rutgers, i'd teach a class called "murder in america." when i saw that he had been murdered, the intrigue of it was that his three doctors were three of the best physicians and the united states and they really messed up the investigation and the autopsy. knowing how hot forensics this, i thought this would be really interesting to apply this to an old murder case and then to probe the other areas of the case that were so surprising. >> did you decide right there on the spot to do that? >> i did. i told my wife that it hit me in the head. she said that that was a great idea and i should pursue that. >> how long did it take them to buy your book? >> i think a couple of months and then it took nearly a year to write it. >> how did you go about writing it? >> very carefully. i went down to williamsburg to the college of william and mary to the rockefeller library and i went to the state library of virginia in richmond and the richmond historical association. then, the rutgers library and a couple of other places. i did a lot of medical res

cell phone companies in the united states of america. and then she championed press ser reags and keeps them operating in place instead of going in the single payer direction. like what would you say if you were fighting single payer. >> lawrence, you've been there for the senate finance committee. nobody is going to like the bill that goes through. it's going to be a big, hairy, ugly piece of legislation that satisfies nobody. that's not the issue. the issue is an i am perfect bill better from the status quo? and the answer to that question is, you're dam right it is. it almost doesn't matter what the details were. it's so terrible to people who get sick and face bankruptcy on top of their i amness that it must be chased it and all of the bills out there take care of that problem, a catastrophic illness. none of those bills leave people high and dry should they get very sick. that's the core of this. the rest is all important but we cannot let this opportunity slip through the cracks. and the idea of being no bill, liberals getting too much that they wasn't, that is the disaster. there

economy in the long run. >> long, long run. >> this is america regenerating itself and it does require us to press the reset button and say 70% of our economy is no longer going to be driven by consumer sales. this is bad news in the short run but this is like somebody who is -- >> there are healthy things emerging, like you're saying. but there's this unemployment rate that's not going away. it could actually worsen and when you're unemployed or lesser employed than you were and your neighbor is unemploy, your behaviors will change in ways that are not good for the economy. >> listen to this story. an unemployed new york city woman is suing her college alleging her $70,000 tuition was a waste of money. the 27-year-old says monroe college failed to provide the promised career advice and job leads and she wants her money back. >> you know what she should have done. gone to the university of alabama. great school. look at me. >> these private schools -- >> i come to work whenever i want to come to work. >> just take responsibility for your life. >> jack welch mba. >> very overrateded degree
: during last year's presidential race, then senator obama repeatedly promised america that -- as goes 41 goes 44? now, the pressures of another campaign promise like healthcare seem to leave a few options. secretary gives -- gibbs basically tried to reverse what secretaries geithner and sommers said yesterday. >> it was clear it you look at the transcripts of what secretary geithner and larry summers said yesterday was once the economy recovers, to tackle the deficit, it is not without reason that we should look at raising taxes on the middle- class. after several go-arounds with reporters, a bit exasperated, robert gibbs of for this final summation. >> present it made a promise on the campaign. he is clear about the commitment, and he is going to keep it. >> what is that commitment? not to raise taxes on families earning less than $250,000. at one point, he was asked about the word "commitment," instead of "promise" or "pledged." shepard: i wonder about troubled loans because they come out of white houses, people from the right and left. i wonder if i'm the middle class, and they say th

. that is the national desk. they are covering america. this is the foreign desk. every picture that comes into fox news comes in through here at the media desk. those pictures will always be in those three on the right-hand side. in the top box, we are learning about what happened to an airplane that had to make an emergency landing because of turbulence. you will hear from a passenger who says that they were flung from their seats. cash for clunkers could be dead on the road. now it is up to the senate to keep the program going, but now some democrats are saying that program does not make sense to them. in the bottom box, imagine no one on line and seeing a picture of your child on line, and then imagines seeing the picture because someone had put it up for adoption. martha: right now we are waiting for press secretary robert gibbs to step in front of the microphone. he is likely to be in the hot seat today as reporters try to pin him down as to whether there is a door opening on new taxes to pay for health care and reduce the deficit. some of the president's top in visors are saying it is not necessa
producers in the america, pilgrim's pride, a few miles outside of my congressional district, they had to declare chapter 11. maybe we should have a cash for cluckers program and pay people to eat chicken. >> it's not clear yet just how many new cars have been sold under the cash for clunkers program. the obama administration says it will continue to find a way to keep it running. a white house spokesman says the government will honor all new qualified cars sold over the weekend. >>> unemployment and foreclosure rates can cross racial lines, they do remain hire for minorities, both african-americans and hispanics. they also saw a higher proportion of subprime mortgage during the boom. >> nice to see, sir, ray khouchaba. you have been surveying minority groups in a number of urban areas, how are you sensing they are approaching this economy? >> well, tom, we're seeing three things. first of all an increase in optimism amongst these groups. first. second, much greater focus amongst african-american and hispanic communities on what they are spending their dollars on. third and probably mo
president himself made to middle class america. >> if you make under $250,000, you will not see your taxes increase by a single dime. not your income taxes, not your payroll taxes, not your capital gains tax. no taxes. >> the white house hasn't commented on whether president obama's officially changed his position on the no tax increases pledge, but i'm wondering how you're absorbing this new information here. should middle class americans be asked to pay more in taxes to reduce the national deficit? this, of course, even though during the campaign, president obama promised there would be no tax hikes for the middle class. i mean what are you willing to do? 1-877-tell-hln. or e-mail us, go to cnn.com/hln, click under your views, you can text us the word views, comments and name to hlntv. standard text rates do apply, by the way. this segment all about you and your thoughts, thank you for sharing them with us. >>> detroit auto make letters report their july sales today and analysts are expecting some pretty encouraging numbers here. edmunds.com predicts they will show sales jumped more than
